We finally got a hard freeze here in Indiana. I don't have any freeze proof dirt so sets requiring the buring of traps is out. Any ideas?

Also I've been making cubbies and guarding them with a 220 for coon with no luck, any tips. Is this a popular set?

Try cutting a tight trapbed, and covering it with grass, straw, hay, etc. You can use snares, as long as you have written permission from the landowner (and use them in an appropriate places concerning domestics).

Hey Deke where abouts in our great state you located at?And yeah 220 cubbies are popular,they are basically all I use.The coon a holed up right now since the freezing temps have set in.I have already stopped trapping coon for the year,they are starting to rub and look bad.
